A new addition to the long list of Guinness World Records comes in the form of a peonies flower, constructed nearly entirely of diamonds. Coronet designed one of their newest watches after the "king of the flowers" according to Chinese Culture, calling it "Mudan" and displaying it in a showcase at Baselworld.
The record set by Coronet is for the most amount of diamonds set on a watch. The "Mudan" watch beat the last entry with 15,858 diamonds set in 18-karat gold, which totals at 50.01 carats.
Jewelry designer and artist Reena Ahluwalia created a hyper-realistic diamond painting specifically to be featured on the dial of this piece. Ahluwalia's efforts can often take hundreds of hours of painstaking detail to finish.
Coronet's previous records included a Coca-Cola bottle-shaped handbag covered in 8,543 black diamonds and 1,345 colorless diamonds, amounting to 120 carats in total.
Baselworld will be wrapping up on March 26th.
